Tepper: [knocking on her door] Mrs. Darmsetter? Hey... You left your door open again.
Mrs. Darmsetter: Heaven sake, I wonder how did that happen.
Tepper: Yes well, how is everything?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Well, I'm worried about my mail. I think someone's stealing it. Because I haven't received any letters from my kids in a long time, and they always write.
Tepper: Well, are they taking all your mail or just the letters?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Just the letters. You'd think they'd take everything else, wouldn't you? They don't.

"Finder's Fee" is outstanding! Good old fashion suspense right to the end.
14 May 2004 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

I was on the edge of my seat the entire movie. I just happened to stumble on "Finder's Fee". It's a 10+ for suspense. Anyone who likes good old fashion suspense will love this movie.

In short, it's about a street artist who is put into an ethical dilemma after finding a wallet containing a $6 million winning lottery ticket. He returns the wallet. But does he return it in tact? Does he return the wallet empty, keeping the ticket? Does he tell his friends?

The suspense in "Finder's Fee" just keeps building and building until the climactic ending.

I have to applaud the writing, screen play, actors and directing. It was all perfect. And everyone was perfectly cast. I'd like to believe that Alfred Hitchcock himself would have been pleased with "Finder's Fee".
